Setting up Synology ZNC or Pogoplug w/ Weechat & ZNC

Hello techies,

I'd like to set up ZNC with either my DS212J or Pogoplug w/ Weechat (already set up).


If I'm going with the pogoplug route, I installed weechat last night and it connects to an IRC server fine. I installed ZNC and set up the config file to connect to the IRC server, but when I try to connect, it's trying to connect to the default port 6667. I tried going into the .znc/configs/znc.conf to see if I can change it to another port but nothing.


If I'm going with the DS212J route, I already installed ZNC thru package sources and set it up with similar settings. I'm using XChat and it connects to the host fine however when it's connecting to the server I'm getting an error message: Attempting to connect to [irc server + 6667] ... Cannot connect to IRC (Cannot assign requested address (Is your IRC server's host name valid?)). Retrying... Again, it's the 6667 port that is set by default.


Thanks!

Port 6667 is the default port for IRC, alternate ports are often chosen for many reasons.

In the config, you specify the port(s) that the ZNC server listens on and the port on the remote IRC server (under users) that it should connect to. If you don't specify, it will use the default of 6667. http://wiki.znc.in/Configuration

I followed those instructions and under the users for "Server = ircserver port password" (i.e. "Server = myirc.net +6696 blah") i entered the port it should connect to.


Or am i missing something else? Thanks

The "+" is used if you're connecting to the irc server via ssl. Try just using "Server = myirc.net 6696 pass" to test a connection without ssl.

If you have a web interface running on either of these devices, you might try making changes from there or running znc --makeconf

Make sure you restart znc after you make changes to the conf file!

Are you running a webadmin interface for znc?

Can you put another irc client of some sort on the pogo and try to connect to the irc server?

-edit- i tried archlinux's IRC and it worked. so it must be the IRC server I'm trying to connect to and has nothing to do with my settings.
